Try a second time with the same project.
It asks only for new units. If you answered to open it as regular file  
it will be opened as regular file the next time without asking.

We all are used to File/Open. That's why it so important that is does  
not ask the same question again and again.
You want to create a project, which is imho not really the task of  
"File/Open", but of the project menu.
